Information on GST Refunds

 

OPG has ceased the charging of GST for two applications from 14 Feb 2024: (a) to register a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA); and (b) to register as a Professional Deputy (PD).

This follows the press release of the Ministry of Finance on the review of GST application on Government fees, where it was found that certain fees had been wrongly charged with GST. The new LPA application fees can be found here.

OPG will progressively refund (with interest) all affected parties who have been wrongly charged with GST. Affected parties would have received a letter from OPG informing on the refund process and details, and may scan the QR codes in the letter for more information.

Recipients should verify that the details mentioned in the letter are correct, and the links/QR codes in the letter direct to a “go.gov.sg” URL. OPG will not require you to provide your bank account usernames, passwords, One-Time Passwords and credit/debit card information. 

If the affected individuals have passed on, the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate or next-of-kin may contact OPG for the refund process. For Donors who have lost mental capacity, payment will be made to the Donor by default via the PayNow-NRIC linked bank account or local bank account number provided to the Government. Otherwise, the Donee appointed in the Donor's LPA may inform OPG of the alternative refund arrangements.

Please refer to our press release and Frequently Asked Questions for more information. For further enquiries, please contact 1800-226-6222 or enquiry@publicguardian.gov.sg.
